Hi LizzyLeah,

Yes I am a designer. What are you looking to have designed? You can also post in the modelers needed section. I would be happy to work with you, but my time may be a bit limited if its something complex. I'm not going to be a Florida Shapie much longer, im in the process of moving.

MrNib, can you recommend any spray on lacquers for metal? Was going to try Rustoleum, unless you know of one better.


I haven't sprayed any metals yet. You're not going to be able to see yellowing effects from the coatings so anything that the label says should work with metal in your application (inside/outside) should be ok.

One advice it is that for metal version you must rotate the holding ring due the fact it does not support interlocking parts.

Looks good overall. Nice brand logo too!

Hi Luis.

As I've said, I've got now some new printed stuff in 1:48th scale, and I'd like to share my experiences here.

This is not WWII exactly, but I think that T-26 light tank was a very representative tank of interwar period in the 30s of XX century.

https://images2.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/625x465_2055433_6410400_1409639583.jpg

https://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/625x465_2055433_6410401_1409639583.jpg

https://images3.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/625x465_2055433_6410402_1409639583.jpg

There is some stepping in the upper surfaces of the body but I think the result is quite good. Details are crisp and well defined, and tracks fit straight on wheels.

I think it's an ideal model for 28mm wargames in Spanish Civil war scenarios.

And this other model is actually WWII, of course.

An US M3A1 Stuart light tank with 'welded 'turret basket', so it would be useful in WWII scenarios from 1942 onwards.

I've got some problems with this model:

There is a notable differente between left side and right side of every part in the model. One side is well defined and crisp, but the other is smooth and like a 'sticky mess'. I don't know how to express it in english, Is like a bunch of powder covering the details. I think it's a matter of printing orientation but I don't know.

This is the fist time I've got this problem with WSF.

Despite of this matter, I think the model is still acceptable, if it wasn't because I've designed the wheels and tracks so tight that there is no way of fitting them. Thus I must admit that the adjective 'strong' is considerably appropriate for WSF material, indeed, because I've done a considerable force trying to put the pieces together and tracks has resisted all my efforts with no problem.

With a good sanding and patience I think it's not going to be any problem to mount the tracks, but I think that apart from the small tolerances that I designed the pieces, fitting problems are also due to the excess material that I mentioned previously.

And as if that weren't enough, the ring that connects the turret to the body is not!!!.

I have reviewed the stl I've uploaded and ring isn't there too, so apparently has been a problem when exporting the stl model, which I had not noticed, because when I uploaded T-26 and M3A1 stl's to order the print, I experienced the 'Shapeways gremlin' activities, and all rivets of the dissapeared after uploading. So while uploading and re-uploading looking for the rivets... I didn't notice that the obvious turret ring wasn't there. XD;

The good thing about 3d printing, is that this ring will be included in one of the following printing models in WSF and problem solved.

Overall, after 3 models printed in 1:48 scale, including my beloved 'panzerito',

https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/p417x417/10428482_546348628824400_7492731940435837242_n.jpg?oh=e68898870da8bf770c4aaaf3a6f3d876&oe=54788B95&__gda__=1417065637_af315d44f19b153ec5579e77c0cd5f8b

I think the chances of WSF material for this scale are quite good.

The 'stepping' is a considerable nuisance, and printing orientation also influences the quality of the details, but in general, I think the results are quite acceptable and cripsness and fineness of detail of the T-26 tracks is a good example of the benefits of this material.

Finally, I've got another model almost completed: A soviet BA-6 armoured car.

I think it would be a good partner for T-26 in Spanish Civil war scenarios.

With the full color plastic material hype in my mind, I though that It would be a good model to try color printing, so I started texturing process, but unwrapping and painting is a hard work and my computer doesn´t like my artistic skills, XD;, so it crushes every five minutes and I've lost a lot of work.

This is a test of textured model I've uploaded to try, because I've never uploaded coloured models before, but after looking at printed models in new plastic material that have been showed in this forum, my hype has fallen down and I don't know if it worth the efforts.

https://images3.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/625x465_2580531_6335263_1409262661.jpg

I guess I'll keep working in texturing process and try to print the model in color, if my computer survives, but my expectatives are quite low.

Regards,

Oscar.

Shapeways backend will do the Boolean Union operation on model that touch like "shell 1 goes in to main shell 2 like 0.5 mm" , when it fails you can go to https://netfabb.azurewebsites.net/ or use meshmixer to have another go with remesh function http://www.meshmixer.com/download.html

On high poly count meshes over 900.000 you rather do a remesh with meshmixer if applicable to lower the poly counts down and do boolean function on them.

For checks and measurements use neftab basic here http://www.netfabb.com/downloadcenter.php?basic=1

I can't visualize what the object is but can you represent the grain with a mathematical function? Maybe you could use something like the ShapeJS script, OpenSCAD, etc. to define the basic object and modulate the surface with the pattern equation? With ShapeJS you might be able to input a gray scale image to define the pattern, sort of like the 2D to 3D tool or the ornament generator. I'm guessing there are easier solutions using more advanced software packages but I seem to end up doing things the hard way...

With Blender you can use the Displace Modifier to use a Texture to change the surface of a Mesh.

Create a Mesh with enough detail that the displacement can be effective, get an image of the 'grainy' surface and you're good to go.

Welcome Mobius. Yes it can be tricky moving from another field to 3D printing. Models made for renders or animation don't require a lot of things that are required to become a physical object.

hi,

read your instructions on how to apply/send the colour information along with the model. so far I didn't have any luck. This is what I (unsuccessfully) did:

export model to x3d file 'example.x3d.'
export png file 'example.png'
zip both files in one archive

no luck :(

just adding coloured material to the model (originally in blender) and exporting to x3d didn't work either. Not getting any colour at all.

Any help would be appreciated.

p.s. I applied for use of the new multi coloured plastic (no reply so far) and wonder if that will be the same procedure.

If someone stole your car ...he get jail sentence.

Stealing someone intellectual property it is no joke.

They can ask for brand damages fro 10-100.000$ or more even if it did not sell anything because they used their brand for marketing and ...influenced other to steal intellectual property. Market your business without the right holder of the name in order to get popularity ... Nintendo don`t want to be associated with house hold items ... that are not related to their market.

I know! It's wrong for someone to sell anything that remotely looks like the intellectual property of anyone especially if they think somebody else MAY own the rights to it. You can't expect to successfully fight a large corporation in court if they make a claim against you. That's why they have highly compensated lawyers. They will squash you like the greedy little cockroach you are and fight you until all of your resources are depleted. And just to be safe, never, ever in a product description or published interview mention or acknowledge any possible perceived similarities to any other product ever produced by any company on any continent, just for your personal protection.

In addition they should demand that 3D printing companies also return the profit they generated from such infringement for every item they sold, publicly or privately, plus an additional damages claim for potential lost revenue in expanded markets and lawyer costs. This animal planter must stand as an example to all that every planter must be designed as a smooth cylinder or box without any decoration or representative shape whatsoever to eliminate any and all possibilities of intellectual property infringement in the future. And never, ever in a product description or published interview mention or acknowledge any possible perceived similarities to any other product ever produced by any company on any continent ever, again for your personal protection.

That it is one of the main reason some manufacturers chose to use the basic forms for some products. Like the general usage drinking glass for wine.

But still there are original defined version with sculptural stuff on them that can be of higher value.

Usage of things related to movies , animation , drawings can always land in court and put charge on every count of infringement from : copyright , brand , market damage ... and what they list.

In general corporate lawyers are not like "regular" lawyers and they tend to go for full charges , where a simple company with not big budget their hired lawyer will recommend "licensing" the work in order to expand the market.

So asking Nintendo to license a stuff you made when you did not contact them before to sale to public ... will fire them at you full weapons and they use that at maximum.

I do think prevention and education it is better than punishment in Intellectual Property field.

Meaning in every school must be a teacher that say the basics : "Copyright means to protect the work of a man that create something. So that man can get money for food and other living necessity. And in long run , the same man that made something can hire YOU and YOU that you don`t have ability to make something and give you a living"

When you make a brand you make it to protect your income and your employees job ...

In real life everything we use , is born from copyright , even the law was first ... a text on paper. Everything made made.

Problems arrive when people abuse the right , and have no common sense , and make big bucks , never hire nobody ... and they die and the state get the money and invest them in future people.

There are lots of people in this world that can`t control themself ... and does not matter the profession.

Polyurethane should not have issues with moisture, should it?

Correct. Same base material as construction foam.

After much deliberation,

We decided to go with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd

1st: Holden8702's Full Color Motorcycle
2nd: UniverseBecoming's Bull Elk
3rd: Joy Complex's shipping container (get it down to one part ;-))

I'll message you guys with your winnings as soon as I get them.

Great work by all!

Neat!! I'll add some sprues to those doors to get the whole thing one part. The handle on the door is an interlocking part. Do you reckon it's OK as it is or should I add a sprue to that too?

Thanks guys! :D

Any word on whether or not this material is going to become available for product sales? If so I'll move it to my Microcosmic shop.






It always was. It always was because somethingness cannot spawn from nothingness. And in the was of the past there is the forever of the now. Only now. Only now and nothing new, for anything new would add to the infinite, yet there can only be one infinite. Only one. The universe is only becoming something new in the delusion of our minds. This delusion that makes life worth living in our perceived universe becoming.

The way you have it in your render, it is not interlocking. Interlocking has to be trapped, and can not become a separate part.

Just to get some clarity over the pages.
Is the only the makers pages over products as will have the new design?
Will the public shop pages be untouched / unmodified ?


There have been no changes to the shop pages today, but we were thinking we would take a look at them prior to the holidays. We haven't thought much about specifics yet, but making sure the design is clean and matches the rest of the site, shop sections are easy for you to manage, and the pages are fast are on our list of things to address. Are there any changes you wold like to see on the shop page?

We would love to hear feedback on the new layout - what you like and what you don't like - so we can keep improving it :)


The older version was better. But maybe it is possible to select a layout.

If the new "my models" is set then make so then I click on the product images or the product name I will go to the product pages and not to edit if the product pages that do we have a linke for "Edit View Delete" links.
I want to see the numbers of users as favorited, like this: "Favorited by (2)" or "Fav: 2" or "!2" else a smile and a number after the "Delete" link as text.

I think it turned out great! It does have a very Zen garden feel to it. I'm waiting on some polished steel prints at the moment, and I'm also a little surprised by the lack of shininess of your print compared to how the materials are presented on the shapeways materials page. Hmmm...maybe someone from shapeways can chime in on why there is such a big difference?

Gorgeous...the best FCPs I've seen so far! You must have used some highly saturated colors?
